Whither the web page?

The iPhone is clearly changing the way I get and read the news. I’ve recently added apps for the New York Times and The Huffington Post that make it easier to find, read and share stories.

If you’re already using the iPhone, you know what I’m talking about. If not, I probably can’t explain it here. But the web site as we have come to know it is feeling more and more like the tail than the dog.

I think something else is at work here as well. What is the value of having your app icon be one of the 16 on someone’s iPhone “home” screen?

One thought on “Whither the web page?

  1. I heard a story about a CEO that just got an iPhone and wanted his site re done to run well on the iPhone.

    I hope Apple keeps the “No Flash on the iPhone” forever maybe that would mean that Flash could slowly die a much deserved painful death.
